Within Destruction & More in Ottawa

Ottawa, Ontario – (July 25, 2019),Adrienne Row – Smith With the sun still shining brightly, and a line up down the street, the Within Destruction and Sentinels show had the tell-tale signs of a being a good evening. The two touring bands were supported by local bands Held In Secret and Salem Trials.

Up first   for the evening were Ottawa djent metalcore band Held In Secret. Blending a mix of anguished harsh vocals paired with melodic cleans, the band were able to get the crowd to throw down and start the evening off on a hard foot. The band were a fierce force stage, featuring jumps and lots of head banging. Held In Secret even featuring guest from Jericho of Salem Trials for one of their songs. The band are passionate about delivering a good show, as they weren’t afraid to get aggressive and throw down in t he mosh pit while they played. The band ended their set with a cover of Counting Worms (Knocked Loose)  which got the crowd amped up for the rest of the evening.

Following Held in Secret, Salem Trials who brought heavy moshing enticing music in a different form. The band’s music was a blend of straight chugging and breakdowns, overlaid with an atmospheric searing lead guitar that gave the ban an eerie but captivating vibe. Basically, Salem Trials has eloquently captured the sounds of what a I would assume an existential crisis soundtrack would be. So, if you’re in the market for that check em out. The band finished their set with a two-steppy rendition of Bulls on Parade (Rage Against The Machine) which saw guitarist Nick Baker riding around the mosh pit perched on top of someone’s shoulder for the intro. Salem Trials have a spark and have found a musical formula that sets them apart from their peers, give them a listen  and check em out if they come to a city near you.

For Sentinels first time in Ottawa and second time in Canada, the band was eager to get the crowd moving and off their feet. Vocalist Joe Benducci did the absolute most onstage to entice the crowd in giving energy, by loudly encouraging them to move forward, mosh and even taking time to chat to more dedicated fans during the sets. It was clear he was willing to put the effort in to provide the fans with a great show. Music wise the band played an enticing set, with beats and breakdowns that anyone would have been crazy to refuse to throw down to. The band also took some time out of their set to show appreciation and camaraderie with their touring mates Within Destruction, going so far as to dedicate the song Hollow to them.

For the grand finale of the evening, Within Destruction set out to show why they felt justified in having scrims that said “True Slam.” With screeching highs and pig gurgling lows, the band delivered an exemplar performance in unparalleled heaviness. Featuring only a single guitarist, vocalist and drummer, the band showcased impressive musicianship that left the venue quaking and fans were eager and willing to throw themselves together during their set. Living up to their name, Within Destruction succeeded in getting the crowd engaged with their music by having them conduct a wall of death, all to the fitting song “Deathwish”.
